Angelika Millmaker Artist Bio:
I am a Norwegian artist, and the essence of my work is very much rooted in the colors and landscapes from Scandinavia and the traditional simple design of Nordic art. The difference between the cool, cold almost whitish blue winter landscape and the bright colors of summer is extremely inspiring to me, and many of my paintings are characterized by bold contracts between colors, textures, shapes and light. Although my paintings are never a direct translation of nature, it is possible to trace the pure white light of a winter day or the vibrancy of a flower in a variety of unexpected ways. My work is contemporary abstract art ranging from big motives and bold colors to subtle, white washed images of a snowy pale winter day. A pink sunset, a rectangular pattern of land seen from above, or a delicate flower are examples of images which are blended together to create an abstract form of beauty. Departing from a single vision from nature my paintings try to show her inner mechanisms and vitality not represented by appearance, but by the emotions these visions create in the viewer. Having painted at various levels throughout my life I took up painting full time when I moved from Norway to Houston 13 years ago. After taking various art classes, I enrolled at The Glassell School of Art in 2005 where I was a part time student for two years. I have successfully participated in art markets, shows and group exhibitions, and I have also sold a number of paintings through commission work.
